Social Security retirement benefits are calculated for each individual, based on his or her own earnings, assuming both parties worked and accumulated the minimum 40 credits e…ach to qualify. Spouses who were homemakers or disabled may draw against the working spouse's record, and typically receive 32.5 - 50% of the spouse's monthly benefit. In 2010, the maximum individual benefit is $2,346 (or $4,692 for a couple ). This assumes the person retires in 2010 at age 66, and has made the maximum FICA contribution every year since age 21, an unusual scenario. The average monthly payment at the beginning of 2010 was $1,164.00 . Benefits are calculated based on the number of years worked, your 35 highest income-earning years, and the age at which you retire, as well as the total amount of all benefits paid and the total number of people receiving benefits. It would be impossible for us to calculate this number for you, and also impossible to predict any changes in your income or made to government policy between now and when you retire. You can get a rough estimate of projected retirement income using the SSA benefits calculator, accessible via Sources and Related Links, below.
